Using DaVinci Resolve’s New Sky Replacement Feature

Ever struggled with replacing a sky? Now it’s much easier.

When grading or doing VFX and you want to make a boring sky look better, it used to take time and a fair amount of effort to make it look right.

Not to mention the time to find a stock footage element to use as the new sky.

Now it’s just a built in effect that — with a little practice — can replace a sky in no time!

The release of DaVinci Resolve 18.1 included a new Sky Replacement OFX to make your life better.

In this video from Darren Mostyn, you’ll learn about:

  • Finding the Sky Replacement tool
  • Keying the sky with magic mask
  • Using an FX node
  • keying with 3D keyer
  • Feeding a mask into the Sky Replacement tool
  • Sky Mask Adjustment tools
  • Generating an artificial sky
  • Motion tracking
  • Autosizing the sky to match the shot
